Sixteen - Orla Gartland

A few fixes from the existing UG tab, fixed lyrics and song structure, added 
missing chords and repositioned some chord changes.

Standard Tuning
Capo 5

        Am            Em
And she was no beauty queen
           G               D
She was in love at just sixteen
        C     B* Am                        Em D
with an older boy who hardly knew her name

    Am                   Em
Her head was filled with fairydust and gold
          G
She never listened to advice
   D
Or did what she was told
        Am                          Em
But she knew what she wanted from a very young age
       G                          D
Didn't care about a job or give a damn about a wage
Am                           Em
She just wanted him, and she wanted him for good
             G                 D
She would do whatever it took, whatever she could
    Am                                Em
And now she can't stop loving him she never meant to start
         G                          D
But what else can you expect from a foolish heart

        Am            Em
And she was no beauty queen
           G               D
She was in love at just sixteen
        C     B* Am                        Em D
with an older boy who hardly knew her name
          Am               Em
She would think of him and say
G                       D 
  You will be mine some day
        C      B*     Am                              Em
But her head was filled with things that could've been
         
And she was just sixteen


Am                            Em
Age is but a number she would say and she'd believe
         G                                  D
But four years is way too long to wear your heart on your sleeve
                Am                               Em                                    
And she thought maybe it's time to move on, it's been too long romance is gone,
G                        D      
Sung is the song and now this feels all wrong
         Am                  Em
And in a world of advice she feels so small
        G                                   D
Someone better tell this girl it's probably not love at all

        Am            Em
And she was no beauty queen
           G               D
She was in love at just sixteen
        C     B* Am                        Em D
with an older boy who hardly knew her name
          Am               Em
She would think of him and say
G                       D 
  You will be mine some day
        C      B*     Am                              Em
But her head was filled with things that could've been
         
And she was just sixteen

Dm     F                  C                         G
   Oh no, here she goes again, here she goes again, here she goes again
Dm     F                  C                         G
   Oh no, here she goes again, here she goes again
    Dm                           F
And she got what she wanted when he returned her love
    C                          G
And everything was cosy and he fit her like a glove
            Dm                                       F
She always dreamt of things she never had though she knew that it was wrong
    C                                       G
And he blinked and she blinked and suddenly thirty years were gone

And they remembered all the times that
    Am            Em
She was no beauty queen
           G               D
She was in love at just sixteen
        C     B* Am                        Em D
with an older boy who hardly knew her name
          Am               Em
She would think of him and say
G                       D 
  You will be mine some day
        C      B*     Am                              Em
But her head was filled with things that could've been
         
And she was just sixteen
